If you don't need too many minutes or text and only 1gb of data, 100 per month for 2 phones sounds like a lot.

do u need a phone or will you use the sprint phones? Basically any prepaid carrier is a good value it just depends on the service you want to have. If u are happy with sprint you can get virgin mobile or boost mobile. You can even bring your phones to straight talk...

Imo you first have to decide which service is best for you and where you are most. After at you can see all the prepaid carriers and Mvno of the carrier etc..

This is a good resource for prepaid.
